AGENDA (Please note: All items listed on this agenda may not be considered or discussed at this meeting and may be addressed at future meetings.)

  1. Call to Order

CHAIR STATEMENT: This meeting is being recorded by the Community Relations Committee. If any other persons present are doing the same, you must notify the chairperson at this time. In accordance with MGLc 30A SS 20(g) “No person shall address a meeting of a public body without permission of the Chair and all persons shall, at the request of the chair, be silent. No person shall disrupt the proceedings of a meeting of a public body. If, after clear warning from the chair, a person continues to disrupt the proceedings, the chair may order the person to withdraw from the meeting and if the person does not withdraw, the chair may authorize a constable or other officer to remove the person from the meeting.”

  1. Roll Call
  2. Approval of Minutes – None.
  3. Communications from Department Heads, by invitation
  4. Public Comment
  5. Discussion
  • Topics from Greenfield residents that have not been addressed at other Council subcommittee meetings: The CR committee will hold a public forum to hear from residents on topics they may want discussed in the future that doesn’t occur elsewhere. This will be a time when we can point you in the right direction or at least take notes to get information back to people. For instance, this will not be a time to discuss Lunt’s because we have an Economic Development Committee or Chief Haigh due to pending litigation and people should talk directly to the Mayor and/or Public Safety Commission. We would like people to come with not only ideas of things they want to know more about, but what solutions you have. This may be the perfect opportunity to find out how to get more involved. For instance, we need more people on our Youth Commission. I’m hoping this will be a respectful listening and sharing evening so we can determine if it should be monthly. We do hear your views during public comment and they are appreciated. Hopefully this evening will be more open without everyone focusing on 1 or 2 agenda items. Next month there will be a presentation regarding housing.

  1. Other Business
  2. Next Meeting – October 17, 2022, 6:00 pm, via Zoom Conferencing System, unless otherwise posted.
